    Unless of course they just Rousey the title to him..
    Rory is right up in the mix. I think he should have to win another fight before getting a title shot though.

    Wouldn't you want to beat the VERY best WW? Afterall, the guy who beats GSP at WW will basically become the new superstar of the division.

    Sounds to me like Johny is ducking GSP in lieu of an easier route to the title lol.

    Well if it's to make my d*ck hard .... Rousey for sure, I agree they all should of had a title showdown.

    Hendricks would fight Ellenberger or Maia I would guess.

    Lets hope Anderson vs GSP happens and Hendricks can fight Maia.

    In no way does Rory deserve a shot yet.

    Johny Hendricks Already Back in the Gym Preparing for Georges St-Pierre | MMAWeekly.com

    “I’m just going to work on things that I could have done better (in the Condit fight),” said Hendricks about his waiting period.

    Hendricks is adding something extra to his training while he waits for a firm date for the St-Pierre fight.

    “I’m actually going to lift during this camp, during this off-season. Last off-season I didn’t, so I’m actually going to start lifting again, trying to get up a little more power for this next fight,” he said.

    I think he's playing a game that GSP started. Or at least, it's the latest volley in a game GSP started...it's more overt, less subtle, but it seems like title shots in zuffa are as much about PR as they are about talent.

    More about PR than talent, actually.

    If Georges won't come right out and state that he wants the #1 contender--whom he effectively discredited in many casual fans eyes by taking the fight with Diaz--the #1 contender is every bit as entitled to discredit him.

    Don't forget Sherk. Handing a popular fighter a belt isn't new to zuffa.

    Again, I think this is posturing and public relations. I think the reference to Georges as "the guy who's had the belt for the last three or four years at 170" was a deliberate insult. He's been a dominant champ--he's faced better opponents than Anderson--and it's been 5 to 6 years since he regained the belt; but this seems to cast him as just another fighter at 170. Just one of many champs; kind of like Georges ducking him to take the money fight cast Hendricks as one of many contenders.

    It's definitely a page out of dana's "oh that guy isn't important enough for me to get the details straight on him" PR playbook.

    Sounds to me like Johny is ducking GSP in lieu of an easier route to the title lol.
    I wonder if Hendricks would ask for Rory instead of Maia or Ellenburger. It could start a "new" tradition in zuffa--if you can't have integrity, at least cash checks. Or in Georges' case, cheques.

    sad.
